What is Code Blue?
Glens Falls Code Blue provides emergency overnight shelter to homeless people in the Greater Glens Falls Area. A Code Blue night is called when the forecast is for a temperature of 32 degrees or lower (including wind chill) or at least 12 inches of precipitation.
We launched Code Blue in January of 2014 when we saw there was no place locally for the homeless to get in out of the dangers of the cold. Responding to the needs as they come to light is a part of our mission to serve our community.
Code Blue closed on March 4th for the season, which wrapped up our 2018/19 winter. We served 90 individuals in our community who needed a safe place to be in out of the cold.
Currently, we are in the midst of Phase 2 renovations at our new building which will expand our Code Blue facilities, the goal is to have a 20-bed year-round facility to meet the growing need.
